Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Cert Logos Color

The CERT Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

All CERT Basic Trainings for 2018 have been completed. CERT develops and publishes the yearly training schedule in December. CERT 2019 Basic Training dates will become available at that time. If you would like to join Arlington CERT and you have not yet had the training, you may seek the training with other local jurisdictions and provide a completion certificate.

Please email oem@arlingtontx.gov if you have any questions.
